Wow….looks like Lachie Neil will be requesting a transfer back to Freo.  Big news that.

Yep just read that on News.com. At 28 and an injury riddled season at the Lions I wouldn’t be selling the farm to get him back. There is some high end talent available in our u/19’s and we will most likely get pick 6 at least for Cerra if he goes to Carlton. Rory Lobb might play a big part in a trade.

Totally agree with you DD, why in fudge would Freo give up what they get for Cerra and their pick 8 for a 28 going on 29 yr Lachie Neale. So many good WA boys on offer in the draft who could be 10 + Freo players in Van Rooyen, Erasmus etc. Neale is a class act, but not worth 2 first round picks.....look at Kelly at WCE....WCE sold the farm to get him and TBH Kelly aint worth jack shit.....well definitely not what WCE gave up to secure him......

Was driving to Claremont Oval to watch the Colts on Saturday listening to 91.3 Sport fm when Peter Sumich broke this rumour of Lachie Neale wanting to come back to WA as his wife is pregnant and wants to be close to family on the before the bounce show in the morning.
Then I had to laugh when last night (Sunday) on Ch7 and then in this morning's West they apparently had the "exclusive" nearly 2 days after Sumo lol

Remember Lauchie running around for Swan Districts in 2012.As a Freo rookie before the Peel Alignment.In particular a second semi at Claremont oval.When he got the footy over 40 times that day.Taking on Blackwell,Foster,Mitchell and not giving up all day.
Knew he was going to be a star the young South Aussie..But wasn't to know how good.Brownlow medal and a bucket full of Western derby's Glendinning+ Allan medals..Great player who raises his game to a higher level in big matches...
Hope Freo can get a deal done with Brisbane.. Like Travis Boak at Port he can play as a mid till his mid 30's.

Would be coming back for the stock standard home run dockers part time retirement/holiday tour after all picking up a heap of cash in Qld - suits him and his family down to the ground after all that's what its all about isnt it?

I think he's ideally suited to Freos needs. They will be looking over the next three to four years to be in premiership contention. Cerras going, can't rely on Mundy to have a big influence, Fyfes next few seasons are hard to predict, he hasn't been that great for a couple of seasons now and is usually buggered towards the business end, that just leaves Brayshaw and Serong - they'll need a bit more midfield depth. Draft picks this year probably aren't going to be ready quick enough to have an impact during that premiership window.

That's about it Baz, today’s footballers are mainly mercenaries.  I suppose you can’t blame them, they can set themselves up for life.

I wouldn’t be trading for him. Take the Cerra picks plus what we have and potentially head the the draft with 4 picks inside the top 30. Should be able to draft 1-2 key forwards, a mid and hopefully Bazzo from Swans.

Neale is 29 in May next year and I don’t see him lifting Fremantle from 10 wins this year to 15 next year.

Miss out on some of these WA guys then try and get them to our club in 3-4 years time. Stuff up two drafts.
